Also, we heard from the big-name keynotes as part of the wider Wealth Management Edge programme including football superstars Eli and Archie Manning. 

Free passes

If you are a single family office, high-net-worth individual or an advisor that is new to PPLI including RIAs, independent B/D advisors, regional advisors, wire house advisors and financial planners you may qualify for a free pass. 

Qualifying advisors must be active as a financial advisor with reportable AUM and new to PPLI. Proof of certification (CFP, CFA or others) is not sufficient nor qualifies you for this rate.

We heard from NFL legends for an exclusive keynote Q&A

Eli and Archie Manning took to the stage to discuss the secrets of their success on the football field and in the business world – while also sharing their perspectives on managing family and intergenerational wealth in this exclusive keynote Q&A.
